Review 1180
Mental StatusWeek 1
What comprises a mental status?
ABCT + MMSE/MiniCog: Appearance, behaviour, cognitive function, thought
process
o Behaviour: eye contact, speech, facial expressions
o Cognitive function: orientation, attention span, memory, judgment
(safety concerns)
o Thought process: understandable, logical and rational, coherent,
relevant
The Faces of the 3 D’s:
Dementia: slow, subtle process resulting in progressive loss of cognitive
function
Depression: chemical imbalance enhanced by psychosocial factors
Delirium: ACUTE confusion
Neurological Assessment: Week 2
So important because: TBI (traumatic brain injury)
Health promotion:
FAST (how to spot a stroke)
o Face dropping, arm weakness, speech difficulty, time to call 911
Components:
1. Vital signs: increasing pulse/pressure= concern
2. Pupillary response: PERRLA (cranial nerve 3)
3. LOC (alert, drowsy, stuporous, unresponsive)
4. Speech (cranial nerve 9, 10)
5. Facial weakness (cranial nerve 7)
6. Pronator drift (motor function)
7. Proximal limb weakness (motor function)
8. Overall cognitive function
9. Common reflexes??
Glasgow Coma Scale:
LOC (8 OR LESS):
Speak, shout, shake, pain
Spontaneous: enter the room and pt. wakes up
Usual voice: state pt. name and ask him or her to open her eyes
Loud voice: only if no response to usual voice
Tactile: touch pt. shoulder or arm LIGHTLY
Noxious stimulation (pain): nail pressure BUT TELL PT FIRST

Respiratory Assessment: Week 3
Lifespan considerations:
Pregnant women: not rate, but effort
Infants and children: apgar scoring above 6pts.
Older adults
Cultural considerations: no difference racially, but size matters
Involves:
Diffusion and perfusion
o Indirectly by SpO2 monitor
o 92-100% is expected
o Directly by arterial blood gasesdirectly from artery
o 95%-100% expected
Ventilation by rate, rhythm, depth, and effort
Hemoglobin
o Women= 115-160 [PERIODS]
o Men= 135-170 [TESTOSTERONE]
Assessment: The Interview:
Involves basic questions (i.e. health history)
INCLUDES HEALTH PROMOTION (smoking cessation plan, seasonal
vaccinations)
Assessment: Physical Exam: IPPA:
Inspection: cyanosis, symmetry
Palpation: bumps, bruises, rashes, expansion, hardness
Percussion: not used very often, but looking for RESONANCE
Auscultation: breath sounds
Breath Sounds:
Bronchial: high pitch, harsh/hollow
o Short during inspiration, long during expiration
o Trachea and larynx
Bronchovesicular: moderate pitch, blowing
o Inspiration= expiration
o Major bronchi/sternum
Vesicular: expected finding, low pitch, breezy
o Long inspiration, short expiration
o Peripheral lung fields
Adventitious: crackles, pleural friction rub, wheeze
Peripheral Vascular Assessment: Week 4
Is the blood flowing?
Assessment: CMSTBEP (EVERYTHING DONE ON BOTH SIDES!!)
Colour: pink, warm, moist

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.
